  • Can we just say, ' for pc' as Sonos doesn't make a Windows 10 app and this works exactly the same on Windows 7/8/8.1. I don't think we should be pushing a company that has boycotted the platform.
  • They haven't boycotted anything. No one is forced to develop a UWP app.
  • Next, please consider doing an article on how to navigate to a website using the Internet Explorer app for Windows 10. Bonus points if you can help us figure out how to navigate forward and backwards too.
  • Get the Zonos app if you want a mobile or pc controller
  • Phonos for w10 mobile. Why in earth is this article on here?
